TikTok To Limit Premature Election Victory Claims
TIKTOK TO LIMIT PREMATURE CLAIMS OF VICTORY IN NEXT WEEK'S ELECTION
(CNN) – TikTok says it will limit premature claims of victory in next week’s election on its short-video clip app.
Those victory claims will be restricted until the associated press has declared a result.
The social media company is working with third-party fact-checkers on the initiative.
TikTok says if victory claims can’t be verified or fact-checking is inconclusive, they will limit distribution of the content.
the app is owned by a Chinese company.
The move comes amid the app’s battle against the Trump administration’s attempts to ban it in the U.S. over concerns for data privacy.
